Hi, my name is Alys Jackson and I'm an author and poet

based in Adelaide, South Australia.

My work has been published in books, magazines,

anthologies and online.

My New School

My New School

William T Wimple has an odd purple pimple,

Felicity Totty is sniffly and snotty,

Melanie Gough has a troublesome cough,

Felix and Nashy are a quite a bit rashy,

While Cedric DeLister complains of a blister.

Jeromy Riley is frighteningly smiley,

Bradley B. Big has a nose like a pig,

Benjamin Lee has a scab on one knee,

and poor Mrs Duffy is sometimes quite puffy…


But the rest of the teachers are fine.

    • Thank you, Quinten!! I’m very happy to say that they were NOT teachers at my school. Alys 🙂 😜

    • Hi Sevasti. Sometimes, it takes a very long time – maybe months, even years. But this one only took a week to write. I’m glad you thought it was funny. Alys
